Every year at Morning Light, we have the honor of helping our residents celebrate their last Holiday season. It is such a heartwarming time of year as we are able to witness the community step up and bring joy to the lives of those who need it most! We wanted to share a few of our holiday happenings so far this year:
Morning Light staff hosted our first annual Thankful for You event for our residents, Board members, and donors. A Thanksgiving feast complete with all the fixings was shared around the table of the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home. It was truly a meaningful time.
Board Member Juli Hurdle and her husband Matt host a Thanksgiving open house every year and ask their guests to bring an item to donate to our Home. Every year, we are BLOWN AWAY by the amount of generosity shown by the community!
WZPL’s Smiley Morning Show chose the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home as one of the beneficiaries of their Twelve Trees of Christmas! The hosts of the show surprised residents, staff, and volunteers with a Christmas tree, ornaments, and $500! The Home will also be featured in a segment of their radio show!
During the next few weeks carolers will visit the Home, special meals will be delivered, and gifts will brought to our residents straight from the North Pole by the big man himself – all thanks to our fabulous volunteers! If you have a special way you would like to volunteer at our Home this season contact Community Involvement and Events Manager Madison Gonzalez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to personally give a gift to our residents, shop our Morning Light Catalog: Holiday Edition. In the catalog, there are several tangible ways to brighten the spirits of our residents and make sure our free hospice home can continue to serve those who have nowhere else to go in their final stages of life.
We couldn’t do what we do without your support, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Abbie Hunt Bryce Home residents are always in need of food, clothing, and other household and living supplies. If you wish to donate, contact the Home at 317.860.0484.
